Winter Weather Awareness Week Continues


Winter Weather Awareness Week continues in Wisconsin, and while we are definitely “aware” of winter weather after more snow has fallen this week, emergency management officials continue to spread the word about winter weather hazards and how to prepare for them. Fond du Lac County Communications and Emergency Management Director Bobbi Hicken says its important to prepare for winter weather, especially if you have to travel in it. “People definitely need to have a plan and make sure they are prepared if they are going out in the winter weather,” Hicken said. “They almost have to plan to break down – and make sure that if you break down you know you’re going to need blankets, you’re going to need extra water – that kind of thing – that stuff needs to be in your vehicle all winter long.” Hicken adds that having an emergency kit ready for your home is also important in the event of a power outage due to a severe winter storm.
